Run to the Red Rocks Car Show begins next week
June 8 and 9 is the annual Run to the Red Rocks Car Show in Kanab. Registration starts Friday afternoon with the actual show on Saturday, June 9.
Lodging owners should mark their calendars so they can refer guests to this regional car show on Main Street. In particular, international visitors love to see the older classics, street rods and muscle cars.
Red Rock Roadrunners President Mary Poe said, “The club voted to keep the entry fee the same as last year and to continue to provide all the extra benefits for the participants.”
The registration entry fee is $25 for first vehicle and only $10 for each additional vehicle. It is hoped local car enthusiasts will bring a second car to show to the public.
Cars arriving on Saturday, must be registered no later than 9 a.m. Awards will be presented starting at 2 p.m.
Participants will receive two free tickets for the barbeque dinner on Friday night at 6 p.m. downtown at Gazebo Park. Besides two free dinners, the entry fee includes a complimentary T-shirt, dash plaque and a ticket to a series of drawings open for participants only. Participants will be “cruzin” town after the dinner. Look for the string of classy vehicles.
There are 15 classes for judging including Street Rods, Customs up to 1972 and 1973 to present, Classics, Modern Classics, Mustangs (new), Muscle Cars, Pickups, Four-Wheel Drives, Motorcycles, Stock Vehicles, Sport Cars, Under Construction Vehicles, and a Special Interest Category for vehicles that don’t fit into the above classes. There will be two sandstone trophy awards for each class. There is also a Young Guns Class for owners/drivers under 21. There haven’t been many Young Gun entries in the past, so here is a chance to pick up a trophy.
Poe reminds area residents that you don’t need to belong to the car club to show your vehicle(s), nor does the vehicle need to be in perfect condition. The “Under Construction” Class is a big hit for the public, as they can compare the under construction with the finished vehicles and get an idea of the work involved. The club hopes to have several under construction vehicles available.
There will be a drawing of prizes for the general public at frequent intervals. Prizes have been donated by local businesses. Pick up your tickets at the registration desk when you arrive. In addition, the public is invited to vote for “People’s Choice.” When you arrive at the show, pick up a form at the registration desk so you can vote for your favorite vehicle.
